    ildren refuses pay anything ch

    Dear Elena, In Turkey we do not have a religious wedding rules, Religious wedding is an unofficial wedding and is not protected by laws. However, you can claim Alimony for both of the children, ( for the other one, after he/she borned) For yourself you can ask compensanation. To ask for alimony and compensanation, you need first claim the determination case of biological father against of the "father" Also after the fatherhood determined by laws, you can claim a criminal complaint against of him. Because our laws accepted not taking care of the children is a crime as well. Regarding the Turkish Laws, the custody of children who born out of marriage is belongs to mother. So the father can not claim any right over children. So you can travel here. If you want to start a legal process please do not hesitate to contact with me Best Regards

    SCAM Marriage require Divorce ASAP

    My questions are: We were married in Didim, do I need to get divorced in Didim, or if I locate him can I get divorced in Istanbul? (I don't think he will come to Didim) You have to fill your case either your last residence that you live together last six months, or where one party resides, if there is no residence of both parties in Turkey you can claim your case in Istanbul. If you have his pasport copy, your marriage book a lawyer can find out where is his registered residence to send court notifications. I have 2 witnesses, if I can divorce him in Istanbul would they need to travel to the court? Or can I get a notarised statement in Didim from them? if you show those witnesses tfrom .U.K. hey should come to Turkey. If they are already in Turkey and they reside in didim, the court may ask their witness statement shall be taken by court in Didim. How can I protect my property in Didim to leave totally to my daughter, while I sort out my divorce? If you do not want to wait, you can sell it to your daughter, if you die meanwhile your husband could claim a case that you sell the house because of fail of inheritence. If you want to grant the house still your husband's legal portion will still exist. But after your divorce he could not claim any right unless the house has been purchased after marriage How much is this likely to cost me? The court costs and legal fees calculated separately. Legal fees changes trough lawyer and workload Will I be penalised financially because I worked throughout the marriage, (ie must share wealth accumulated during the marriage) while he lost his job 2 days after the wedding? No there is no such rule in Turkey If he does not agree to the divorce, and makes the process take longer, can he liable for my costs? Only the legal costs, he won't be liable for your lawyers fee.
